Gwen Araujo, who was born Eddie Araujo, Jr., was murdered by four men in Newark, California. The four men who killed Gwen Araujo, two of whom she had been sexually intimate with. The nature of the murder of Gwen Araujo was brutal and cruel as she was beaten up and strangled at a party before being driven to a location that lied a four hours drive away from the house.

The movie A Girl Like Me: The Gwen Araujo Story’ is really a sad movie. My heart bleeds for the sad soul of Gwen that get caught up in peoples ignorance in life. Being different doesn’t mean being wrong or unacceptable in our society, but those who think so should be the one’s unexpected. I’d rather have a minute of something special, than a lifetime of nothing wonderful.
